There’s truly nothing more beautiful than witnessing parents who unconditionally love their children and support them in every way possible. The love former Whose Line is it Anyway? star Colin Mochrie has for his transgender daughter will warm your heart just as much as it has ours.

Last week, Mochrie tweeted that his elderly mom and mother-in-law both fully support his trans daughter, and it completely baffles him that younger people can’t do the same.

After the tweet received thousands of retweets and likes, Mochrie and his daughter Kinley sat down with Entertainment Tonight Canada to discuss their journey as a family, as well as the purpose of the tweet.

Kinley then explained how she chose her new name. She asked her parents for their input on names they would give her at this point in her life. They came back to her with a list of 20 names, and together, they eventually narrowed them down to one — Kinley. 

We love that something so personal turned into a family affair simply because everyone was open and incredibly supportive of each other.

Kinley offered some really great advice for anyone who might be struggling with their own gender identity.

Happy tears all around!
